Plus500 Ltd.

("Plus500" or "the Group")


Pre-close Trading Update


Plus500, a leading online service provider for trading Contracts for Differences ("CFDs") internationally, is pleased to announce that the strong momentum, previously referred to in its trading update on 20 November 2018, has been maintained through to the year end.  The Group has continued to perform well since the implementation in August of regulatory changes by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA).


Accordingly, with the year ended 31 December 2018 almost complete, the Board anticipates the financial performance will be ahead of current market expectations.


Plus500's robust financial performance for the year is a result of ongoing innovation and strong operational performance, supported by the momentum from the end of the prior year and significant market volatility during the fourth quarter of 2018.


Asaf Elimelech, Chief Executive Officer of Plus500, commented: 

"2018 was a landmark year for the Group, during which Plus500 was admitted to the Main Market and joined the FTSE250 Index.  We are delighted, in such a momentous year, to have delivered both strong operational performance and record financial results.  Our focus remains on gaining market share in our current markets and growing rapidly in new jurisdictions by acquiring, engaging and retaining high value customers.  We very much look forward to updating shareholders with our Full Year 2018 results on 12 February 2019."
